Quantum redactiones paginae "Disputatio:Cavia porcellus" differant

The intro sentence seems to suggest a common name or genus is in mind, not the species ("X is a mammal of the caviid family originating from one or many of the species of the genus ''Cavia''"). It looks like it was written when the page was still at a page that could be about cavies in general, but wasn't rewritten when the page was moved to ''Cavia porcellus'' in particular. (The history doesn't support this hypothesis, though—I can't tell how this sentence came to be at all.) —[[Usor:Mycēs|Mucius Tever]] 19:16, 7 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
:I created the intro because I believe the original article is about Guinea pigs/Caviis. The long hair type from Peru and 'cobaia' were give-aways. (If erroneous which is unlikely, it should be corrected.)I uhh, am no biologist am quessing there are many species like dogs and cats. I will work on confirming this info.

::It doesn't look like you wrote this part of the intro. The first sentence is saying that the ''one'' species "Cavia porcellus" has individuals from one or many species in the Cavia genus. This would be appropriate if the lemma was "[[:en:Cavia|Cavia]]" (=guinea pig/cavy) generally—a ''cavia'' could be anything in the genus ''Cavia''—but the lemma is "[[:en:Cavia porcellus|Cavia porcellus]]") (=domestic guinea pig) which is only the one species. If the page is going to be about all species of guinea pigs and cavies, it should be moved to [[cavia]] and the first sentence updated. If it's only going to be about the domestic guinea pig, the first sentence needs to be rewritten. (It might need to be rewritten anyway. It's worded awkwardly and looks like it could also mean that the species itself comes from multiple species, but this would be unusual for a mammal, and I don't think en.wiki suggests this is the case.) —[[Usor:Mycēs|Mucius Tever]] 17:47, 8 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
